Storytime Squares Quilt

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Storytime Squares Tutorial Link to website or photo www.made-by-rae.com/2010/12/finito-storytime-squares-quilt-in-far-far-away-ii/ What are you most proud of? It was my first time using a walking foot and second quilt, so really I was just happy to finish it. It's a birthday gift for my good friend's one year old, so I wanted to make something special for her. I love it, though - would love to make another one on a larger scale as a throw or lap quilt. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The tutorial was great and again, I'd start quilting in the middle and simply work my way to the outside, rather than first stitching in the ditch around each pattern block. The quilting took more time than I'd thought, and I made a lot of rookie mistakes like not getting the pieces to fit perfectly when making the quilt sandwich, trimming the outside edge before I should have, etc. But my binding is way better than the last time and quilting with the walking foot was a lot easier.
